Kasilof History Finds a Home
Peninsula Clarion (Kenai, Alaska)
November 17, 2004
In addition to the menagerie of items and displays from the Kasilof of old, the Kasilof Historical Society's museum also hosts a resident carver, George Harrison Calvin, who makes artwork, arrow heads, knives and belt buckles out of stones, bones, horns and antlers.
Thuough often hard at work, the 81-year-old admitted that his day often is split between carving and chewing the fat with museum patrons.
"It's probably 50 percent work and 50 percent storytelling. I enjoy talking to people and sharing the history of the area, and with so many old-timers disappearing, there's not many of us left to share stories of how it used to be," Calvin said.
